Learn how MIPS scoring works in 2017, and make it a money-saving game with better patient outcomes.
To fulfill requirements of the federally-regulated Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) track of the Quality Payment Program (QPP), you need to know what data to report; how to report; how long to report; and on which providers to report. Then, you must figure out how your practice scored so you can anticipate a negative or positive payment adjustment.
The CMS Quality Payment Program (QPP) is a mishmash of complex measures, scoring, and acronyms (like QPP, MIPS, CEHRT). Confusion is perhaps the only constant when talking about maximizing performance in this ever-evolving program. One element which requires attention by virtue of how CMS “labels” the item is CEHRT, the acronym for Certified Electronic Health Record Technology. CEHRT was a designation assigned to certain electronic medical or health record (EMR/EHR) platforms meeting government-defined criteria. Not all EMR/EHR products are CEHRT.

This is Part IV in a series on Opiates: Are There Any Good Answers? Last week, we visited with a mom who lost her only child to an accidental overdose.We can all agree this was hard to read, but a necessary part of our series. This week, we change direction a bit, and we hear from a lady who has horrific pain issues, but due to the current Opiate crisis, can no longer get pain medication. Many of our readers have written to us,
It sounds like it might be too good to be true, but Group Reporting under the Quality Payment Program is an important thing to understand. Under the QPP and the MIPS program, in 2017, any practice with more than 2 providers can use group reporting by submitting data on JUST TWO PROVIDERS! If you have 10, 30 or even 100+ providers under your TIN, successfully reporting on just two (in their specialities) can avoid a penalty and potentially result in a partial or full bonus.
